restoration of a coffee grinder

This a coffee grinder that belonged to my grandmother. It was such bad shape that retaining the old finish wasn’t worthwhile. 
So I sanded it down, painted it with acrylic washes for an antique look and then varnished it. 

I’m very happy with the results.

Although not the grinder itself this photo is close to what it looked like.
